Blurb from my MA in Illustration:

Timelapse illustrations: I began craving the ordinary, everyday life and the reality of people. I found myself sketching in cafes responding to the stories as they unfold in front of me. Enjoying immersing myself in the moment and layering it with a sketch of the next moment. Taking pleasure in the way people interact, telling their own individual narrative. When the sketches are finished (although often not complete) I often add photography to ground the image leaving the viewer in no doubt that it celebrates the real world albeit through my eyes. To acknowledge it’s subjective nature I often hint at my presence through a sketch of my hand or a photo. I began searching for cafes with different cultural environments, if you know of a cafe or coffee house worth sketching drop me an email via the contact page. You can also find me on instagram & twitter @cheriejerrard or look for #cheriedidthis.
